Local MEP Paul Nuttall has welcomed the announcement that more than £300m is to be invested in BAE Systems’ submarine shipyard in Barrow.

“This is fantastic news for the area which will benefit enormously from this commitment in terms of jobs and the local economy.

“Their is a great pool of shipbuilding skills in Barrow and this development will add to that centre of excellence,” said Mr Nuttall, UKIP deputy leader.

“The decision on how to replace Trident has been postponed until after the General Election but it is vital that work on the next generation of nuclear-deterrent submarines goes ahead as soon as possible for the country’s sake as well as for the future of Barrow,” he added.
